We have received many calls about KLB’s Annual St. Catherine’s Island Beach Sweep, so we have extended the virtual beach sweep till December 31, 2020. If you are a Boat Captain and want to make a difference in your community, you can still conduct a cleanup on your own. Contact our office with the date you plan the cleanup and the number of volunteers you are taking to the island. We will provide cleaning supplies and t-shirts. You can call us at (912) 880-4888 or email us firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the schedule.
Each year in October, we focus on our waterways and the damaging effects of litter and debris on our healthy and unpolluted waters. Due to COVID19, we had smaller groups performing cleanups throughout Liberty County on October 24th. It is not too late if you want to be a part of Rivers Alive 2020. Rivers Alive is a statewide effort to preserve and protect our waterways in Georgia. Rivers Alive is sponsored by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources Environmental Protection Division’s Environmental Outreach Program. Rivers Alive events are also part of the international efforts of The Ocean Conservancy.
You can plan to volunteer this year until the end of December. Make a powerful statement about protecting our waterways by planning a cleanup for your company, church, school, family, or friends. Join us as we stop litter in its tracks and before it reaches our county’s water. We all can make a choice to make a difference to keep our waterways clean. KLB still has some official Rivers Alive neck gaiters left while
supply last. You can sign up online on our website www. keeplibertybeautiful.org.
